How tarot cards help me remain focused and positive

I get a lot of questions about how I can find motivation when stressed. Sometimes it’s hard, but tarot cards have always helped.

Let me start by sharing that I was raised as a Christian. I still hold many of those beliefs, but I also hold beliefs of other faiths. One of my main ones is Wicca, and that’s what initially made me turn to tarot cards. I don’t believe they offer all the answers, but they help me spiritually.

For those who get turned off by religious posts, I’ll say now that this isn’t one. Not unless you believe in inner-focus and spirituality are only for the religious.

We have to be balanced internally if we want to find balance externally. That’s always been something I’ve believed in. If I’m stressed inside, my whole day gets messy. I can’t concentrate on what needs doing, the slightest thing that the kids do annoys the hell out of me, and I’m just the least helpful person in the world. I have to find a way to get that balance back.

How can tarot cards help with focus?

Tarot cards have long been a way to help me find balance. I gave up on them for a long time, slightly embarrassed that I was even using them. As an educated person, how could I possibly believe in something was written in the cards.

Well, it’s all about what I take from the cards. I don’t believe that the cards tell me my future. I don’t look at them to give me the answers about whether I’ll get a yes from the pitch I’ve put in or whether my client is going to let me go in the middle of a pandemic. Instead, I look at them to give me a feel of what’s happening, of the decisions that I need to make.

They give me something to focus on.

Every evening, I do a one-card spread. If I’m feeling extra anxious, I’ll do a two-card spread. I focus on the next day—24 hours from when I’ve drawn the card(s). With the one-card spread, it’s all about what’s to come. I get an idea of what I should be putting my focus on, whether it’s moving ahead with a decision I’ve made or being cautious with a pitch I’m putting forward. There are times that the cards are more focused on life with the kids, whether my homeschooling plan is working or not.

A two-card spread is a little different. The first card is the past and the second card is the future. It allows me to reflect on what’s happened in the last [insert time period here] and what I should focus on coming up.

With the look forward, I can set goals for the day. They’re what motivate me.

I get to keep things positive and moving forward

Surely if my cards are negative, I can’t have a positive outlook, can I? Well, that’s where the tarot cards really do help me.

Without the cards, I’ve often found myself dwelling on the bad. I don’t always see what I need to put my focus on to be able to move forward. My motivation slips and I struggle to get anything done. I’m just a terrible person to be around. Ask my husband.

With the cards, I get a little more direction. I have that focal point, which helps me be a little more positive in my outlook. I get the motivation back because I have a goal for the day.

Once I’ve drawn the cards, I always write in my diary. I reflect on what the cards could mean and the direction I need to move in. I assess what has happened so far and why my mood is the way it is.

I often wish that I never allowed myself to get out of the habit of using tarot cards. I shouldn’t have let others’ perspectives cloud my own spiritual journey. Now I have my tarot cards (and I adore The Modern Witch Tarot Deck by Lisa Sterle) and I can become more focused and more determined.
